Lydia Sisson, a 2008 graduate of the Business Planning Course at New Entry, has secured some land in N. Reading to start her business, Luna Farm. Lydia’s agricultural experience started as an undergraduate at Vassar College, where she volunteered on a local farm and was subsequently hired to work in their CSA program. Upon graduation, Lydia worked for United Teen Equality Center (UTEC) in Lowell, as a mentor in the “Fresh Roots” program, where youth learned about growing, cooking, and selling food. For the last year now, Lydia has been the Farm Education Coordinator and Seasonal Agricultural Intern for Green Meadows Farm in Hamilton, MA. At Green Meadows, Lydia was teaching classes to adults and children as well as assisting with vegetable production and animal husbandry for their 370-share Community Supported Agriculture program.
Luna Farm, in North Reading, Massachusetts, is a diversified vegetable farm on five acres of land. The mission of Luna Farm is to provide the community with fresh produce grown with sustainable and organic techniques and farming practices that enrich the soil and the fertility of the land. Luna Farm strives to create equal access to healthy food for the entire community.
Luna Farm is a CSA and she is taking orders now for the 2009 season for delivery to N. Reading and Davis Sq in Somerville, MA.
